So my OT apt this morning was pretty uneventful.
We basically had a bit of a catch up. We didnt set goals like I thought we would be doing. We just ended up talking about symptoms, and symptom management.
I was telling Mark how that I had decided to make my mental health a priority this week, and that I hadnt been into the basement club lately, but that I was going to start going back in again starting from today.
He said how I was really good at knowing what I needed, and he congratulated me on that, saying that 4 or 5 years ago I wouldnt have had the insight to know what I needed and how I would have relied on external people to tell me, where as now I dont do that.
He said it shows how far I’ve come since starting to work with him.
I guess he’s right. I never really looked at that aspect of things though.
We planned to meet again in august, in late august, he said he’d phone me and we can arrange something then. There will be a move in september to a new building for all of the mental health services, so in August we are going to work on route familiarisation if thats possible so that I can familiarise myself with the new set up.
We’ll also work on goal setting for the next few months. Fun times ahead, I guess.
